How to Change a Wheel Bearing (short and fast version)
Learn to replace a pressed wheel bearing in a Ford, specifically a 95 Ford Windstar, but this method will be similar for all pressed bearing vehicles. The main steps are to take off the spindle nut, tire, brake caliper, and rotor. Then remove the bolts from the lower control arm ball joint, tie rod, and strut. Remove the steering knuckle, then press out the bearing and hub/spindle. Then press in your new bearing and hub/spindle. This job is a little more complex but can still be easily done by any amateur mechanic. You will save $400-1000 depending on your vehicle.

Bearing Making Noise? Fix it Before This Happens!
Thanks for watching. Please comment, rate, subscribe, and check out my channel for automotive repair how-to videos. This is video of a Ford Explorer / Mercury Mountaineer that lost a wheel on the interstate. The vehicle had to be making some serious noise for a long time before the wheel finally let go. The caliper bracket was all that was holding the wheel on until it broke. The people in the Exploder should be glad the thing didn't flip or hit any other cars. Next time you're riding down the road look at the car beside you or coming towards you. This could happen to any poorly maintained vehicle at any time. Be careful out there.
